“Call it a high-octane collection of love and death poems; call it poem noir on rollerblades—romantic, pastoral, tropical, narrative, political, meditative, comic, and beautifully rendered. No Guarantee explodes like a thoroughbred from hell out of the starting gate and never lets up. I guarantee it.” —Roger Weingarten
“An edgy lyricism moves through these poems, with yearnings and never-quite-consolable losses, from the other side of a difficult childhood to an adulthood the poet cannot entirely come to terms with.”—Carolyne Wright
“He brings major experience to the table, the well-traveled experience of a man familiar with what Stephen Spender called ‘The destructive Element.’”—Jonathan Holden
